Inside Episode 7 with Toni Pergolin
For the seventh episode of Withology, Brian sits down with Toni Pergolin, President and CEO of Bancroft, a leading nonprofit providing support to individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities. Its programs and services include special education, job training and employment, neurological rehabilitation, community living programs and more.
After a distinguished career at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Toni led Bancroft through a turnaround which saved it from bankruptcy. She also spearheaded fundraising for the new $75 million Welsh Campus in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey and put her decades of experience down on paper in an engaging book, Too Important to Fail: Leadership Lessons for Nonprofits. Toni’s leadership is a success story not just for her, but for the thousands of individuals Bancroft serves.
Not sure what “Withology” means? That’s because we made it up.
Extraordinary things happen through collaboration, influence and inspiration. No successful person has ever achieved their goals on their own. Host Brian Tierney sits down with the nation’s most successful business and industry leaders to discuss their personal journeys and unpack the stories and people who helped them get to where they are today.
Withology will explore the philosophy that Brian’s parents instilled in him at a young age: anything is possible with hard work and great people.
